Building a robot hardware ecosystem in Sydney
There are significant barriers to entry for hardware start-ups – principally, accessing prototyping equipment and capital, finding manufacturers and suppliers, and distributing and maintaining their products.
This panel will study these key challenges: how can a robot hardware start-up access prototyping equipment, and how to manufacture locally. The panel will outline the challenges that current hardware startup founders are facing, profile equipment suppliers and also encourage conversation around how large equipment conglomerates can assist startups in bringing their prototype to life.
